Paul Buckley

Lead Pastor

Hi, my name is Paul Buckley and I’ve had the privilege of serving as the Lead Pastor for King of Grace Church since its founding in 2002. I’ve also enjoyed the privilege of serving in various denominational leadership roles and as the Director for The Gospel Coalition – New England.

I am very blessed to be married to Peggy (née Fantini). We are living our dream to be part of what God is doing through churches in our native New England. We have four adult children, Daniel, Caleb (married to Hannah), John and Mary and two grand daughters. Please come visit us so we can hear your story. We look forward to meeting you!

Team Pastor

Hi, I’m Toby Gayner and I serve as a Team Pastor at King of Grace Church.  God has led my wife Kelly and I to Haverhill by way of Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey and the UK (thus the accent) and we have been blessed with seven precious children along the way.  I have the joy of leading the Children’s and Youth Ministry at church and love serving families of both church members and visitors in this way.

Support Pastor, King of Peace, Salem

Hi, My name is Mike Lilley. I am a pastor ordained by King of Grace Church but sent to plant King of Peace Church in Salem, MA. After a career in the US Army, my wife Enza and I moved here from Maryland in 2011 to serve with King of Grace.  We have three adult sons, Zak,  Nick (married to Annie) and Ethan.  It is my great joy to see people come into life saving relationships with Jesus, have their lives transformed by the power of the gospel, and live as mature disciples connected to the life and mission of the local church.

Enza and I hope you can visit us in Salem, we look forward to meeting you and hearing your story.
